Re: Taxing revenue is inherently unfair

"A 3% tax on revenue therefore hits Amazon 3x as hard as it hits Google. How is that fair? I get that the EU wants to do something about companies finding ways to skirt taxes, but this seems like a really bad way to go about it."

If only I could persuade HMRC to only tax me on my "profits", eg after I've paid for gas, leccy, water, food etc, instead of being taxed on my "revenue", then I'd be a happy chappy.
